We made this cocktail using Swedish Hellström Gin from Gotland.
First drink of the year consumed outside, on the balcony.
With both amaretto and apricot in it, this cocktail has some nice nutty features.
The Charlie Chaplin cocktail dates back from before 1920, and originates from New York’s Waldorf-Astoria.
The Roman Holiday might not sound like a winter cocktail, but look close in the ingredients list and you’ll see the chili liqueur. And when this spicy spirit is combined with Cognac, rum and orange juice it actually feels like winter.
These are two Almond Brothers by Jason Littrell from bar Death & Co. It’s a recipe that combines Mexican tequila with Italian Amaretto in a playful way.
It is a sour type of cocktail indeed, but of course that orgeat and also the ginger ale take away some of the acidity, making sure the Gin Lane is a well balanced and delicious cocktail in the end.
Pairing cocktails with food is interesting and fun. Some cocktails are so delicate they shouldn’t really be accompanied by anything at all. But particularly long drinks like Cruise Control we think work quite well to enjoy with food.
The base is a mix of gin and apple brandy.To bring some bitterness and sweetness at the same time both Benedictine liqueur and apricot brandy is added. Finally maple syrup is used rather than simple syrup.
